You can search a city, and find the best things are close to home. Our final day in Berlin our friend Philip mentioned that he had it on good authority that a Ramen spot in Friedrichshain served up the best bowls in town. It was a stiflingly hot day, not exactly the kind of day you feel like having steaming hot broth, but the curiosity to finally find a brag-able bowl in the city was too hard to ignore.
The recommendation was right. By far the best Ramen in Berlin so far. Almost the best in Europe so far, but that crown still lays firmly on the head of the wonderful Ramen Kazu in Bratislava.
Pork = Beautifully cooked, great marinade, charred and smoky.
Noodles = Chewy, springy, solid.
Broth = A tiny bit on the thin side for me but still much more flavoursome than the other options.
Egg = Actually better at Takumi Nine, but its a small detail to fret about when the rest was good.
Condiments = Wood ear mushrooms, pickled ginger, spring onions all in their rightful place.
Service = Quick and very friendly.
The quest to find a decent bowl of ramen in every country on earth.
